Assessing and Comparing the Energy Impacts of Three Weatherization Programs in Ohio and Kentucky (Abstract Only)

Date Published: January 1, 2005     Document Type: Conference publication

This paper examines the energy impacts of three different weatherization programs that use three slightly different targeting and/or implementation strategies. The authors also look at the energy impacts of furnaces and insulation and the cost of the saved therms. While the sample sizes for the group with the educational component were too small to support any conclusions regarding specific impacts, preliminary results suggest that an energy education component in a weatherization program may substantially increase energy savings. Further research should be conducted on that approach. (Abstract only)
